Replacing Stitching with Faux Stitching

I have been wanting to try out this cool “stitching” technique called faux stitching ever since I saw it on Lisa Stenz’s blog here.  There is no gel pen involved.  Instead you use Close to My Heart white cored cardstock, our dry embossing tool,  a sanding block, our awesome ruler, and our paper piercing tool.

I took this sweet card pictured on page 74 of Close to My Heart’s 2012 Spring/Summer Idea Book.
Isn’t the machine stitching pretty?  The patterned paper used is from the Lucy paper pack.

Well I took the same design and stamp set and came up with this card replacing the machine stitching with the faux stitching technique.  Here is my card.

Same card pattern, same colors.  I had to replace the patterned paper with cardstock so that I could sand it for this technique, but pretty much everything else is the same.

Check back over the weekend for a tutorial for faux stitching.
